Conservapedia's rewriting of the King James Bible:

The objective:
Framework against Liberal Bias: providing a strong framework that enables a thought-for-thought translation without corruption by liberal bias
The execution:
Mark 10:23
King James Version
And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
Conservative Translation
Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How unlikely it is that those who worship riches will enter the kingdom of God!"
Mark 10:25
King James Version
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Conservative Translation
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a man who cares only for money to enter into the kingdom of God."
Conservative Analysis Section for this revision
very nice improvement on the imprecise term "rich"
That's much better. No longer is being rich a problem!

Difficulties are restricted to the hard-to-prove category of those who are seeking money, which - as a bonus - could be construed as including those deadbeat poor, elderly, and sick, that are looking for a government handout.

POLICY IMPLICATIONS: Clearly, as the Conservative Bible Project shows us, Jesus wants the estate tax abolished and the Bush tax cuts made permanent (or even expanded in scope). Praise!
